      Description

      Traditionally the project has had SimpleSnitch as the default primarily because it makes it easy for a user to download the software and start Cassandra without changing any defaults and it will just work.  However, SimpleSnitch is not datacenter aware.  GossipingPropertyFileSnitch could also be used as the default and would make the default snitch be datacenter aware.  Out of the box it will work with the default configuration.

      This ticket would be to update the default from SimpleSnitch to GossipingPropertyFileSnitch to make the onboarding experience better for those who don't know to change this default if they intend to expand to multiple datacenters without too much hassle.
